Key information about Chalmers...
Where & when does the church meet?
Sunday services happen every Sunday at 9:30am, 11.30am and 6.30pm. People coming for the first time often find it helpful to arrive early so they can meet some of the welcome team before the service.
We meet at Chalmers Church, 69b Morningside Road.
You can see a map on our contact us page.
What should I expect when I visit Chalmers?
You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from the Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. Services run for about an hour and a half and are fairly informal. Services include singing praise to God, times of prayer and a sermon based on a Bible passage.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service when there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens for children on Sundays?
There is a fantastic programme for children and young people on Sundays:
Creche for 0-1s during the 9.30am service
Little Stars for children age 2 during the 9.30am service
Sparklers for children age 3-school year P1 during the 9.30am service
Sunday Club for school years P2-P7 during the 9.30am service
Youth Church for school years S1-S3 during the 9.30am service
CCY for school years S4-S6 at 5pm
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service. The person leading the service will announce when the children go out to their programmes. You will need to go with your children and register them the first time they attend.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you on the children and youth pages.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
We have more information for you specifically if you…
